> Hmmm.
> I did not say block. There is a big range between block and doing nothing. At present it seems you can only react with one or the other. To say " I have no way of telling" reads out here in user space as "I will not protect you, you are on your own". Also it seems that in the past these sales person issues blow up and cause all to get upset as they wait for you to react.

First, we've had salespeople here before, and I think it's OK for them to post. When it comes to information here, and online in general, don't necessarily believe everything you hear. But that doesn't necessarily mean you're on your own and have to wait for me to react, you can respond yourself without blowing things up, for example:

> So, what to do ? On an ADD list I was on these issues were delt with as so:
> If someone posts and it seems to fit the reasonable guidelines I set for detecting a salesperson or fraud, then the moderator, without saying "You are a salesperson" posts ... not saying "Don't post that" more like "A cure would be wonderful but as we seem far from that at present, would you mind also posting some additional info about your cure so we may all can discuss this cure"

IMO, that wouldn't have to be posted by a moderator, anyone could post that -- and link to your guidelines, too.

> In the over the top cases like bin lauden, why not let the deputies block them ?

The deputies can block them. I think it was just an issue of none of us being here for a while.
